Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-24-09  visayanbraindoctor: It's difficult to assess a rook plus 2 pawns vs two minor pieces ending when all the pawns are on the same side of the board and the all the pieces are active. GM So's positional judgment apparently told him that he had some chances of winning as he went for this endgame. Don't know if WGM Yang missed drawing lines.
Feb-24-09  KERESOV: A very difficult game that appears to be equal throughout ... It was surprising that GM Wesley So went to adopt this timid line but of course it's understandable that he excells in complex and highly technical endgames. At the tender age of 15 he already displays a high level of endgame skill ... just amazing ! More power to you and hope you continue your winning streak !
